This large-fruited Italian plum tomato performed superbly in last year's trials. The fruits set well, even under cool conditions, and are juicy and delicious. It produces high yields and boasts a good range of disease resistances. For greenhouse or sunny, sheltered spot outdoors. (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.)
What's so good about grafted veg plants? We are revolutionising the home grown vegetable market with our range of grafted vegetable plants! Commercially the grafting method has been used for some time, but we've developed them for the home gardener, and early adopters have had extraordinary results: • Big increases in yield from larger, more vigorous plants • Earlier cropping, yet with sufficient vigour to crop well later in the season • Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors - little or no heating required • Excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - no more ring culture or grow bags - plant straight in the soil • Greater tolerance to nutritional disorders
Tomatoes - We have selected leading commercial varieties and some traditional favourites - chosen for their fruit quality and taste - and grafted them, under carefully controlled conditions. Note that grafted tomatoes are not suitable for grow bags. An improved technique for tomato grafting - Since 2012, all our grafted tomato varieties now use this new technique which leads to even earlier and bigger crops, with fruiting beginning lower on the stems, producing at least one extra fruit truss per plant during the season!
Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.
